Prince Geno And The Tailormades - Brand New Man With A Masterplan

Recommended Posts

Discography question; why can't I find this on the several (not all of them complete) Aladdin discographies on the web? And why does all others have Los Angeles California under tha label name, while Prince Geno has Washington DC, different labels? Seems strange since they look the same :g:

According to a Rockabilly Hall of Fame web page, Washington, D.C. rockabilly artist Billy Hancock bought (or leased?) the legendary r&b Alladin label from Leon Messner in 1974, after which he released one LP (Danny Gatton "Danny & The Fat Boys") and a handful of 45s including the Prince Geno single and also one by the Clovers before ceasing operations.

Just now flipping though my collection of Washington DC singles and found another Aladdin record not previously mentioned, #5557 by the Nighthawks (Washington, D.C. blues rock band) entitled "Keep Cool" / "Red Hot Mama."  There is a date on the label of Feb. 10, 1975.
